For years, I have lived my life by the mantra: Work hard. Play hard. I have crazy, busy seasons at church where I work 16 hour days and 100 hour weeks and I also have downtimes with my family and we go on little outings and day trips. When I get stressed, I’ll go catch a ballgame or a movie. I try to be present with my family and let my kids know how much of a priority they are to me.
Yesterday, we left for vacation. I will devote the next two weeks to my family as we travel through Colorado. I’m looking forward to some much needed rest, refreshment and quality time with my wife and kids. I’ve already written some blog posts that will automatically post this week. Stay tuned and pray for me. Pray that God would refresh, renew and inspire me. We all need it!
